Lima Bean Casserole


Southerners are famous for making a casserole out of anything, even pineapple.


If you’re looking for a different casserole to serve with your holiday meal, this Lima Bean Casserole is totally easy. Just cook some frozen lima beans and mix in a can of  condensed cream of celery soup. You could use cream of mushroom instead if you like it better.

Lima Bean Casserole with Cheddar Cheese


I also add in a small jar of diced pimentos. They add a little flavor and give the casserole a festive touch. Some onion that has been cooked in a little butter and a whole bunch of cheddar cheese also help flavor the casserole. Cuz let’s face it. Lima beans don’t have a whole lot of flavor on their own.

More cheddar cheese and some crushed Ritz crackers go on top. You could also do a French-fried onion topping.

  1. What could you use in place of canned soup? I used to use cream of anything soup happily in recipes but I can’t anymore now that I’m older lol.
